Mount Avoca Wines Pyreenes Ranges Victoria
2017 'Moates Lane Chardonnay
Bright, pale lemon.
Rich aromas of honeydew melon, dried apricots and toasted cashews.
Fresh and lively fruit flavours of pears and white peach with very subtle hints of oak lead to a silky smooth, lingering finish, that is light and elegant. An easy drinking Chardonnay that can be enjoyed anytime.
The grapes were machine harvested, crushed, destemmed and pressed into.
Fermentation took place over 12 days with selected yeast to enhance both
full flavour development and some complexity. The wine was kept on lees
contact for a further 2 months before being racked and stabilized (protein and
tartrate), carefully blended and prepared for bottling.
Seafood such as crab cakes, smoked salmon or grilled barramundi.
A relatively cool summer made for one of the best vintages for many years
with harvest taking place weeks later than usual and the slower ripening
providing more time for flavour development and more intensely flavoured
